The is no earthing in my bathroom, i.e. the radiator, hot and cold pipes to bath, basin, toilet, also the plugs and overflows. The only thing that is earthed is the 8.5kw shower.
Anyway looking on t'internet it appears that I need to cross bond all of the above items with earth wire and then connect to the earth terminal in the shower isolating pull cord switch.
Ok, here is the stupid question, currently (pardon the pun), there is no danger of me getting an electric shock, as I never do, and never will take any electrical item into the bathroom, and secondly the electric shower has been connected correctly. So if I was to carry out the earthing work as per regs, then wouldn't I be increasing the chances of an electric shock.
Basically I have a irrational fear that somehow the earth lead will someday work its way out of the terminal in the bathroom isolater switch and then make contact to the live terminal, and now suddenly all the earthed stuff is live.
I want to get the bathroom upto spec, but I genuinely feel It'll make the bathroom less safe.
See I told you it was a stupid question :-}
